  • Then comes the really fun stuff—horse rides and a hayride out to feed the cows.
We will do 2 crafts and 2 snacks per day, we try as much as possible to follow the theme of the day with both crafts and snacks.
For example on animal day, we eat ice cream and on veggie day, popcorn. We allow a lot of time for free play and on hot days water games.
